Prompt #23, It’s Post Your Poems Day!

October 13, 2010

A Trip To The Zoo

Now’s the time to tell us about your animalistic associations. The zoo we wondered about the most is the one you carry inside your own thoughts and experiences. So that of course is open to about anything! What sensibility have you found in common you’d like to share? What was your chosen point of view? Did you move outside yourself with your poem? Or simply find something to admire, or not? Did you surprise yourself by topic or style? Please share your results with us now.

Don’t have a poem yet? Perhaps read a few done by others here, be inspired. There’s still plenty of time to discover a poem for yourself!

Leave the links to your poems in the comments of this post, then go visit your fellow writers’ sites and read their work. Remember to leave only positive comments in the spirit of sharing and not critiquing. We look forward to reading your poems!


Please remember to include a link with your blog poem post that links right back to here, this “Post Your Poems Day”, so that others reading your poem can also share in this community poem experience – maybe even someone new to We Write Poems!

If you are new to WWP, please be welcome to look around and read. The full prompt description you can find under “Recent Posts” on the top right of our page.
